Later, Arshi Khan took to the Twitter to clear off the air and wrote, “Ok. This is what I said to @TheKhbri after they dm’ed me repeatedly. And yes, I don’t need it. Never did. Peace 🙏❤”. She also posted the conversation screenshot that she had with a fan who asked her to return Rs 3 lakh to Vikas Gupta.
Vikas Gupta after seeing the trail of tweets was raged up, and he also clarified his part of the story. In the tweet, he wrote, “Idiots of the first order. Jyoti has already received 50 percent of the prize money in the month of March. As for Arshi when offered 50 percent, she said she does not need it. She earns a lot of money. So that part of the prize money has been spent on people who need it 😊”.
Well, there is a lot of speculations about the prize money, and we hope soon the buzz will be cleared out by Vikas Gupta and Arshi Khan.
